    Firm says return your can or you might get Tango'd
    29 August 2005

    LONDON: Drinks company Britvic is recalling thousands of cans of Tango soft drink because of concerns they might explode.


    The company, which uses TV adverts featuring people getting drenched in soft drink with the catchphrase "You know when you've been Tango'd", said the "precautionary measure" came after a small number of complaints about cans bursting.

    "Although not unsafe to drink, the products could contain a naturally-occurring yeast, which over an extended storage period might generate a build up of carbon dioxide that could distort or burst the packaging," the firm said in a statement.

    The recall only relates to 330 ml cans of Tango Cherry and Tango Fruit Fling marked with Best Before dates of June and July 2006.

    Britvic said people who have such cans were advised to note the code on the bottom and call the company's consumer care line on 0845 850 5222 for further advice.

    Great find Primer,

    See if you can corner the market on those 'Tango' grenades! The weapons inventory in our arsenal is pretty much depleted. There may be a slight problem w/the short or non existant fuses so be sure that only the expendable troops are issued them. Like mebbe AWOL Maj Marg and her Troopettes.

    Meeting at the bar in the O.C. at 1800 hrs. Don't bring any samples!!

    What apples? A cup of coffee a day keeps the doctor away

    WASHINGTON: If you are addicted to coffee, and doctors warn you to quit the habit, don't worry, and just keep relishing the beverage, because it's not that bad after all!

    Infact, according to a new study, the steaming cup of java even beat fruits and vegetables as the primary source of antioxidants.

    The study by University of Scranton states that coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in American diet, and both caffeinated and decaf versions appear to provide similar antioxidant levels.

    "Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source. Nothing else comes close," said study's lead researcher Dr. Joe Vinson, adding that high antioxidant levels in foods and beverages don't necessarily translate into levels found in the body.

    Antioxidants in general have been linked to a number of potential health benefits, including protection against heart disease and cancer, but Vinson said that their benefits ultimately depend on how they are absorbed and utilized in the body.

    The researchers analyzed the antioxidant content of more than 100 different food items, including vegetables, fruits, nuts, spices, oils and common beverages. The data was compared to an existing US Department of Agriculture database on the contribution of each type of food item to the average estimated US per capita consumption.

    The results were surprising. Coffee came out on top, on the combined basis of both antioxidants per serving size and frequency of consumption. It outranked popular antioxidant sources like, tea, milk, chocolate and cranberries.

    Of all the foods and beverages studied, dates actually have the most antioxidants of all based solely on serving size, but since dates are not consumed at anywhere near the level of coffee, the drink comes as the top source of antioxidants, said Vinson.

    Besides keeping you alert and awake, coffee has been linked to an increasing number of potential health benefits, including protection against liver and colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and Parkinson's disease, according to some recently published studies.

    The researchers, however, advice that one should consume coffee in moderation, because it can make you jittery and cause stomach pains.

    "One to two cups a day appear to be beneficial. If you don't like coffee, consider drinking black tea, which is the second most consumed antioxidant source in the U.S. diet," Vinson said.

    "Unfortunately, consumers are still not eating enough fruits and vegetables, which are better for you from an overall nutritional point of view due to their higher content of vitamins, minerals and fiber," he added.
